Rangers rounded off a good week's work with a comfortable 4-1 win over Dumbarton - taking their tally of goals to 12 in the process.

First-half goals from Lee McCulloch and Darren McGregor set Rangers up for another home win on the back of Monday's 8-1 hammering of Clyde.

A second-half strike from Nicky Clark and an own goal from Chris Turner left Dumbarton on the wrong of another crushing defeat - with only a Bilel Mohsni own goal for consolation.

James Keatings endeared himself to the Hearts faithful as his hat-trick helped his side ease past Raith 4-0 at Stark's Park.

New signing Keatings, making his first league start, hit his first goals for the club as the Jambos maintained their 100 per cent record at the top of the table.

Raith had chances, but a miserable afternoon was sealed as the game entered injury time, with substitute Gary Oliver finishing from close range after a blocked shot dropped kindly at his feet.

Rory Loy's goal was enough to give Falkirk a 1-0 win over Hibernian, while Alloa won 3-0 at Cowdenbeath and Queen of the South drew 1-1 with Livingston.
